The 2013 Toyota WA Muscular Dystrophy Golf Classic was held on Friday 1 March at the stunning and internationally renowned Vines Resort and Country Club. In excess of $30,000 (Net) was raised on the day.
Golfers enjoyed breakfast on arrival, gift bag, 18 holes of golf with motorised buggy, premium beverages, 2-course luncheon, awards and prize presentation, auction and wine wall.
Heartfelt thanks to our Patron, Mr Stan Perron, for his continued support of the event. Thanks also to the Toyota WA Staff; Managing Director Mark Lauren and Executive Assistant Sue Fidock - without their valuable support, the day would not have been as successful.

Sunday November 18; a dream was sold to four friends; the dream of being vignerons and producing their own wine.
The four friends successfully bid $13,000 for Row 38 of MyattsField Vineyards Mourvèdre Vines.
The unique opportunity is part of MyattsField Vineyards ongoing support of Muscular Dystrophy WA.
MyattsField Vineyards, located in the picturesque Perth Hills, has been producing a unique range of emerging and alternative wine styles for the past 15 years. They have been strong supporters of the muscular dystrophy cause for well over five years, donating their time, their wine and a share of their cellar door venue.
The new ‘owners’ of Row 38 have a 12 month lease of all the vines in Row 38, which not only includes the estimated 15 to 18 cases of wine it will produce, but also, a chance to be involved in the entire viticultural and winemaking process.
“We are so grateful for the generous gift which Rachael and Josh Davenport of MyattsField Vineyards have given us. We are delighted with the result,” said John Gummer, Chief Executive Officer for Muscular Dystrophy WA. “These funds will allow us to provide more services to Western Australians living with muscular dystrophy and to continue our support for research,” he added.
Mr Gummer also acknowledged the presence of Professor Sue Fletcher, who along with her colleague Professor Steve Wilton, were, last week, named the 2012 Western Australian Innovators of the Year for their research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This vital research receives ongoing support from Muscular Dystrophy WA.

Muscular Dystrophy WA is delighted to announce we are one of four lucky Western Australian Charities to receive a grant in the latest funding round from the Newman’s Own Foundation.
The grant is for the purchase of 10 custom made standing frames, which through regular use, can help maintain muscle length and the ability to walk, thereby improving respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary and skeletal health.
announce Paul Newman was committed to helping make the world a better place. To carry on his philanthropic legacy, Newman’s Own Foundation turns all net profits and royalties from the sale of Newman’s Own products into charitable donations. To date, Paul Newman and Newman’s Own Foundation have given over $350 million (USD) to thousands of charities around the world, including $18 million for Australian and New Zealand charities.
Robert Forrester, President of Newman’s Own Foundation, said choosing the charities to receive funding this year was a challenging task due to the high number of worthy applications. “The Foundation continues to focus on charitable areas that enhance the quality of life for children with life-limiting conditions or whose childhoods have been disrupted by circumstances beyond their control,” said Forrester. “We are encouraged by the many wonderful projects that will make a substantial difference to children and their families from around Australia.”
